Romance in the Desert
There are many ways one could decide to enjoy their time in the sun and beautiful deserts of Scottsdale. For instance, few people know this, but the deserts are home to quite a few vineyards and breweries. If you are looking for a romantic start to your holiday, then head over to Carlson Creek Vineyard and enjoy spending some time in their tasting room as you sample a flight of five wines of your choice. Then relax as you gaze at the paintings of local artists, and perhaps enjoying a light lunch with a cheese board featuring only the best of ingredients. If one is looking for an activity a bit out of the ordinary, but nonetheless special, head over to OdySea Aquarium, where you can spend the day looking at a variety of different underwater creatures in this elaborate aquarium. For instance, enjoy their deep ocean gallery which takes you below where you can see the most mysterious of our ocean friends. One could also enjoy their SeaTrek which is have an exhibit and half desert scuba diving.
After spending an early afternoon at the vineyards or local aquarium, one could head over to the Butterfly Wonderland which is sure to be a special romantic addon to a perfect day. Enjoy exploring the largest butterfly conservatory in the country and features literally thousands of breathtaking and beautiful butterflies. They even have a variety of interactive exhibits, and for the studious couple, a 3D movie theatre. Afterwards why not head on over to Beverly on Main where one can enjoy a rather sophisticated and intimate cocktail lounge that not only features a variety of specialty cocktails but also a variety of different foods. You’ll find everything from Caesar salads to chicken wraps, tacos, sliders, and everything in between.
Go Hiking at McDowell
The McDowell Sonoran Preserve is a protected area of over 30,000 acres in the desert that offers dozens of hiking trails that are a true outdoors person’s paradise! Head here early in the morning to avoid crowds and do a nice winter hike, taking in the sights of snow, and holding your partner’s hands as you walk along the Gateway or the Bajada Nature Trail. You can also head here for a special sunset event in the month of February!
Stroll Around the Arts District
The Arts District is one of the top spots to spend an afternoon outside of your cozy and cute home. Head here to check out local artists, sculptures, paintings, photography, and other forms of media that can really set the mood for a romantic weekend. We recommend coming here on the first Thursday of February (before Valentine’s Day) to enjoy live music, art galleries, and drinks/food.
Smell the Roses at the Garden
Head to the Desert Botanical Garden and gaze at the beautiful flowers, breathe in the aromas and scents, and learn more about the flora and fauna of the area. Sit on one of the park benches and take a selfie with your loved one to commemorate the special day.
Grab a Bite to Eat
Last but not least, we recommend getting dinner at a high-end and luxurious restaurant that cuts out mouthwatering food. One of our top choices is Franco’s Italian Caffe in downtown Scottsdale. Get the Bistecca Fiorentina and split it with your date for a romantic start to the night. You can also get the arugula salad with goat cheese to curb any hunger pangs! Split the small dishes with a bottle of red wine to get yourself in the mood.
